Hometown Regatta a Desaster but Series Race 1 a Bullet

We had a disaster in the Hometown Regatta but made up for it at the Fall Series race 1.  We had a good start in the Hometown but sailing with two and doing spin was just too much we also had a chart issue (my chart had “M” marked as R-10 not R-8 so we sailed a mile and a half longer course then the fleet. On the other hand we did great on the fall series. Race committee chose course 2 a short course as the winds at first were light to non existent. At first as the lite winds died compleatly the fleet bunch up at the first mark. All the other boat rounded the first mark and tacked we stayed on the same tack and slid along the bulkhead untill we had to tack but that put us closer to the mark and we were able to fetch the mark on starboard as we approached the mark Valcore made the mistake of approaching on port and had to fall off behind us which spoiled her whole race. We got well ahead of the fleet and sailed to the finish line first. Great sailing from our crew Rodney and a new member “Hammer”.  On the way back to the club we let our new member take the helm to which he did a great job.  Click here to see the results.
